Head of ICE Resigns Abruptly After Nearly Two Weeks

The head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Jonathan Fahey, resigned Wednesday, after less than two weeks on the job, the Washington Examiner has learned.

Fahey, a former criminal prosecutor, resigned abruptly in what one person familiar with the situation said was due his being pressured to sign an agreement with ICE’s union. Two other individuals confirmed the news, first reported by BuzzFeed News. He was the seventh person to lead ICE under the Trump administration. . .

Fahey, 48, was tapped Dec. 31 to take over for then-Senior Official Performing the Duties of ICE Director Tony Pham, who was promoted to the role in September. . .

Fahey lives in northern Virginia and ran as an independent in 2019 for commonwealth’s attorney in Fairfax County, but he lost to Democrat Steve Descano. As a candidate, he said his top priorities included combating gang violence, responding to the opioid crisis, and working closely with law enforcement.
